Derek Dooley Helps Out At Defensive End

  • Who needs Red Bull? Derek Dooley, when he starts feeling tired, gets into the action:
    Dooley played pass-rushing defensive end, even deflecting a pass or two. Earlier he dropped and did 20 push-ups during drills. "When he feels like it's hot and his mind is breaking down," said Poole, "he feels he has to do something to pump up. So I'm like, 'OK.' He's probably done it [before], but it's the first time I've seen it."
  • Tauren Poole was one of several teammates trying to talk Bryce Brown into sticking around.
  • Freshman RB Rajion Neal has been practicing in the early sessions (duplicate link) with the upperclassmen, partly because David Oku has a chemistry class at that time. Neal and OT Ja'Wuan James are the only underclassmen to have that privilege.
  • Speaking of Red Bull, that comment that Ed Orgeron made to former USC defensive end Malik Jackson when Jackson told him he was transferring to Tennessee? Pretty much what you figured it was ($):
"He just said it wasn’t going to be a good choice for me," Jackson said."He said I wasn’t going to play here. He said, 'I recruited those guys, they are way better,' but, whatever, I knew it wasn’t going to be a cakewalk especially in the SEC."

Hmm. Somebody get this message to USC's current defensive ends. Jackson apparently had a much better chance to play at USC because Jackson was better than them, although he's not better than the DEs at Tennessee. Ergo, UT's DEs are better, and Orgeron's not too high on his current roster. That about sum it up? ;-)
